Listing of taxpayers from Hancock County, Illinois in 1842
A weakness of the Illinois State census of 1842 is the lack of information regarding residents surrounding Nauvoo along the Mississippi River. The records in this database can help reconstruct a list of residents in the area. Taken from microfilm records held by the Family History Library in Salt Lake, it lists property owners in Hancock County in August of 1842. Each record provides the individual's name, coordinate location of property, and the page of the original record. For researchers of ancestors of western Illinois, this can be a helpful guide to very detailed information.
Records in this database were taken from Film # 007,706 in the Family History Library, 5th Item, pp.163-236.
